Because my numbers are so terrible(146/2.7/non-traditional/Air Force/8 yrs WE), the only ABA schools that I have a realistic shot at are towards the bottom of the fourth tier. My Question is- Should I go with the fourth tier school( if indeed I can get accepted) or should I go to a non-ABA school for the first year( which would be less than half the tuition), work my ass off, get near the top of that 1st year class and transfer to a tier 1 or tier 2 in 2006?
4th Tier vs. Non-ABA??!?!? I think you forgot to include suicide as a viable strategy.
